    Hey I didn't know if anyone would love this tidbit of nostalgia. A local library was cleaning off their shelves to make room for new books. Well a friend of mine works there called me up and said "Hey girl I have a surprise for you"

    Well I went down there and she had this stack of old Fraggle Rock storybooks for me! I just moved so they're in a box around here somewhere. I'll dig them out to take some pictures to show everyone. I immediately thought of you guys when I got them. I never expected to find such a stash....and for free.

    That's great, christyb! My library has a store section that often has rare Muppet books, including Fraggles. It's always exciting to look through the collection, but also a bit difficult because I always feel like I need to leave some for the kiddies, hehe.

    Surely it's would have been easier to make Fraggle Paperback Books...Rock books are a bit stoneage...

    Maybe that's why the box I put them in broke.....

    Oh I agree heralde. They were gonna throw them away I'm glad I was thought of. I have them in safe keeping. My plan is give them to my kids one day... of course that'd require being married and having kids and I'm single but hey a gal can dream

    Interesting! I just bought a paperback Fraggle Rock book this morning at a used book sale :) I was so happy to find it! It's about Red and a pumpkin, yellow in color.

    Well, we could post them to one of our many kids...But they might be a bit old for FR books...Plus the postage on Rock Books would be phenomenal(do do doo do do)

    The pictures are really nice, someone on myspace has scanned some of the books...
    I have the 'What is a fraggle?' one. Even if you are 'too old' they are nice to look at :3

    I'm thinking, you're only as old as you feel...I'm feeling old, if you're feeling young then go with it! *hands out cucumbers*

    Cucumbers? Please don't tell me MC muffining is on a healthy kick too? Sheesh I remember a MC days when we would kidnap a few muppeteers before mid afternoon cake and cookie time

    Well, finish the cucumbers...or relax with them on your eyes and a comforting mudpack...first, Muppeteernaping second.

    Exactly, you read my mind! Hey, if I have to adopt I will (much later in life of course). I want to have someone to pass my Muppets books on to, hehe. ;)

    See, my original plan when buying Muppet related merchandise was that one day I assumed I'd be able to sell it for more...because it's so rare...But with the Muppets making a comeback, looks like that plan will never pay off...

    ...Ahh, well...Best have kids then...
